This paper is concerned with the development of a new multicriteria evaluation approach capable of handling mixed quantitative and qualitative data. First, a brief overview is given of the state of the art of multicriteria evaluation in urban and regional planning. A mixed data evaluation approach which includes three techniques based on different interpretations of basic assumptions is also discussed. Next, it is shown that there are some practical ways of dealing with the weighting problem that arises in evaluation. Finally, an illustration of the mixed data approach is provided by means of an empirical application to a housing allocation problem.
